  1. Your image expresses the “richly spiced residue” perfectly, the leaves have such robust colours that carry the glow of life even as they crumble into earth. I do enjoy Mary Oliver’s writing — thank you for sharing this poem… her words are perfect for this season: “…and like us longing/to stay…”
